HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Stanley and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Stanley property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Stanley property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on flats 1

We are purchasing a shabby Victorian flat property in Stanley - is it necessary to spend a bit more on a full structural survey?

The Full Structural Survey was recently renamed as a Building Survey. If buying an altered property, for example an unloved Stanley flat - this is the most suitable survey to choose to go for. Around 3 days following a thorough survey of any accessible parts, a report (set out in the surveyor's individual format) is dispatched to the client detailing in depth and serious advice about the construction of the flat. There are certain restrictions with any survey insofar as the surveyor wont be able to open up the fabric of the of the Stanley flat, an example being lifting up fitted carpets. Additionally flat conversions, by their very nature, mean the whole building cant easily be inspected. Although the surveyor is only able to go over the area within identifiable boundary of the flat,, he may exist other tenant shared areas such as like any alarm

system. For a table containing a survey comparison look at here.

Shocking Electrics

When we saw the unmodernised property we expect to lease, it looked like there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox; does the surveyor report on the wiring and fusebox?

When performing a Stanley Home Survey a qualified surveyor will mention the electrical system if it is suspected that they are in a dangerous state of repair.

This should include a visual view of the open areas of the wiring, fusebox etc. as well as possible problems relating to things like verifying the nature of any electrical fittings in shower rooms or reporting on the condition of a representative sample of light fittings. A check for the documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by an electrician on the building should usually form part of the survey in Stanley.

The IEE suggest that an electrical check need be completed every 10 years (5 if renting out). For expert nearby Stanley advice on all things electrical try Safety First , 12 Ashton Rise, Chester Le Street, DH2 2JA .

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a home buyers survey consider indications of flood damage, or whether flooding has affected other houses on the street?

The lives of many property owners in Stanley and across the UK have been seriously affected by flood damage, and the value of a property in Stanley in an at-risk area may be impacted. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes. In addition, the Home Buyers Survey may advise appropriate repairs. The Home Buyers Survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.
